Remember that anything can happen. So don’t put yourself in a hurry when making this big decision.Take as much time as you need to make a decision. Like any other buy, be sure to use the internet (like the rest of this article), research the market, do your homework, and be patient. But please don’t be snailsy.
Start shopping around a year ahead of time. This will be time for research, negotiating, and–if you feel comfortable enough about a boat, boat keeping, and sailing you can make the decision.
Talk to several boat dealers around the community. Find out what kind of financing they offer. Try to find out their rates. Do not do all your homework online; do not buy a bike without asking about the financing. It’s very important you go to dealers who will gladly credit cardify your account and will give you the best rate. Do not go shallow or without a dealer’s word.
Now that you have a boat out there, go out there and enjoy it. But be aware of the things the dealers do and pay special attention to how much they recommend their own products. When you go out to sea, you will come across different kinds of people who will give you completely different kinds of advice. Some might say you need an ergonomic work station, or a jacuzzi tub, or a large screen theater – it’s up to you. Pay attention to how they tell you what you need to know. And be careful about how you listen to them because you know full well what you need to know.
Finally, pay close attention to how well you use your motor yacht. There are many accessories and gadgets you can put on your yacht. But some people still don’t seem to use them. If you have expensive and useless accessories, you don’t want to be on the water with a moored motor yacht. It’s OK to use expensive but sensible accessories on your boat.
So what about the gas on a motor yacht? Is it possible to use petrol? Yes, you can. Here are some suggestions.
Firstly, you need to know how much petrol you need to bring on board with you. On average, you should bring enough for the whole sailing period, not more than usual. And you should bring all your cooking pots and dishes with you.
Remember that on a motor yacht, you don’t have to fill up the petrol tank every time you stop. You may find it takes a bit of efforts to do that from time to time, but it’s still much better than to empty your car completely!
To cut down on the amount of petrol you use, it’s good to have an exact figure on how many miles you hope to travel. We would recommend you bring a good store of petrol in your yacht, and when you get back, do a circle of it every couple of days. The gas in the UK is quite a bit higher than it may be in America, so you will need to get used to a lot more petrol. You should also bring along a lot more of the other supplies you would need.
Many motor yachts, by the way, have electric fuel for electric fires. In America, it’s common to see people half-filled with petrol, and at other times there are no petrol available, even though there are hundreds of miles of roads. When you have full petrol, you should be able to do quite a lot of travelling with a full tank and get to where you want to go quite comfortably. Just remember when you are full, you still have to bring petrol home!
When you have surplus on your motor yacht, by the way, you should take that with you too! You can take your favourite toy (a smaller boat for kids) out for the trip and leave the larger boat parked out of the water. As long as your yacht is relatively clean, you shouldn’t have any problems with it!! If your yacht is not, you will have to either hook or take a trailer hook or some kind of floating trailer.
I would also take a toy boat or a different type of boat. The reason for this is that you will be in some places where there are no or less ‘real’ boats available. Often, the one available will be a half pipe that leads into the local waters, or the local lagoon. So, either find a real boat, or don’t take it. The point is, you will have a lot more fun if you know what it is you’re sailing/pasting, rather than finding a piece of paper you can’t touch.
I would also take some drift curtains with you, because sometimes it is not always so easy to make out where the boundaries are, especially if you don’t know the area. A drift curtain may help you to adapt to where you are, enabling you to see the areas you didn’t see before.
